Small Steps, Sensible Choices, Superior Health.
This is a well done article and I can really relate to it.
As a sufferer of celiac disease, I know very well the effects of chronic inflammation. Celiac disease is an allergy to gluten, found in bran, rye, and oats.
It damages the villi of the small intestine, causing chronic inflammation and malnutrition problems. Unfortunately, many people have this condition and do not know it! Even I did not know I had it for years.
People with celiac disease are 5 times more likely to get Cancer. Why? Because of Chronic Inflammation!
Fortunately there is a simple blood test that you can take to find out if you have celiac disease, and it's a shame that doctors do not screen for it as part of a standard physical.
The good news is, once you stop eating all those foods with gluten, your risk of developing cancer returns to a normal level.
I am doing great now, and avoid all those foods that cause inflammation. My diet includes foods that are high in antioxidants and provide anti-inflammatory benefits.
I also exercise regularly, and take a daily dose aspirin (80mg), which helps reduce inflammation in the body.
Finally, one last tip I can share is the antioxidant cocktail by Dr. Andrew Weil. It consists of five daily supplements: vitamins C, D, E, Selemium, and Co-enzyme Q10. You can find a video about it on the Dr. Oz website.
That's it! I hope this information helps and that you all can enjoy happy, inflammation-free lives :-)
